Food Safety

Key regulations and standards in the United States and around the world are requiring more accountability and documentation up and down the food chain. Dakota Global will ensure your operation is a strong link in this chain.

Consumers are demanding more in-depth and traceable data about what goes into their food and how it is processed, packaged, and delivered. Dakota Global will build the quality assurance and food safety programs you need, by helping you identify areas for improvement and initiating necessary protocols. Best of all, you’ll get our expertise and guidance for a fraction of the annual salary of a full-time quality assurance specialist.

Food Safety Consulting

Dakota Global develops food safety plans for all of your needs.  Dakota Global can help with food safety plans required by the USDA or FDA (regulatory plans) and those required by your customers (third-party), like those that support the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI).

Dakota Global views food safety from a philosophical process prospective. What does this mean? Food safety practices must become part of your business’s culture and daily operations. A comprehensive food safety plan requires several key components. Key components like management and employee commitment, development of a HACCP/Preventive Control Plan team, step-by-step hazard analysis of your operation, and more.


Audit Preparation

The term audit in and of itself is scary. Auditing is sometimes the hardest part of the food safety equation. Internal audits are often conducted by the very same personnel responsible for food safety and this could result in biased outcomes.

Let Dakota Global guide you through this dizzying process.  Pre-audits and mock recalls are just a few of the audit preparatory tools we utilize to ensure you not only pass an audit but excel in your daily operations. We access your system, provide feedback, and prepare you to pass regulatory and third party audits.
